That awkward parenting moment when your son says you are old and can’t strike him out. You decide to send him a message and buzz one high and tight and drill him square in the noggin. It wasn’t a wiffle ball and it wasn’t a real baseball but somewhere in between. He was rewarded with three straight curve balls that he had no chance on. I may be old but still competitive and he has seen me pitch in games before. Should have known I throw hard and lack control most of the time.

Was he digging in on ya?
You have to keep him off the plate! I believe it was Early Wynn that said he’d hit his own mother, if she was digging in on him.

Swung by DSG to grab some Srixon's for my dad for Father's Day and I wandered over to the putting area to check out the TA3 putters. Two older guys were on the green and they would loudly exclaim as soon as anyone got close that they were having a putting contest and everyone had to get off the green. 

Um, what?

I didn't even bother, the place was mobbed so I just grabbed the balls and walked away. Seriously though? A "putting contest" in the middle of a busy store and yelling at people who were attempting to try out putters? 

Ummm, try doing that to this Aussie...it would have made me practice putting for an hour.

A few pictures from Mackinac yesterday. If I ever go again I’ll spend 4 days and hit up all 3 golf courses, and that sweet little grass putt putt course.

That is a magical place!  I love the horse crap all over the roads....I believe you can see it clearly in your one picture!

Yes sir. My youngest was slaloming around it. A few too many people for my liking, but as soon as you get out of town a bit it’s pretty nice.

For anyone that doesn’t know much about Mackinac, there aren’t any cars. It’s horse or human powered transportation. Probably dog sleds in winter.

My 13yo has been sitting at the piano for an hour just alternating between the intro to "Don't Stop Believing" and "Never Gonna Give You Up". For an hour. Nonstop. Also, he's a drummer, not a piano player.

Send help.

And earplugs. 

That's quite a talent!

I put an offer in on a house, first time ever doing anything like this. I'm kinda nervous, I never get nervous, and kinda excited but there are a lot of offers being placed today on the same house per my realtor.

Weather looks better up there than down here. Great photos. Someday I'll get back to the island. Haven't been since I was very young.

Best of luck to you! It's a horribly nerve wracking experience, but it'll be worth it in the end. I'm rooting for you.

Was a beautiful day. That was my first visit to the island. Lived 2 hours away for the majority of my life. Never cared to go. Glad we went, but I don’t know if I’d go again. I like Copper Harbor better.

Didn't get it I offered what they asked and someone went way above that. Time to keep looking but that 10 minute ride to work would have been nice to look forward to.

That's a bummer. Hopefully something even better comes your way soon!
